April 2018 update
Did you know this year is the 50th anniversary of our church building? Our congregation can trace its roots in Westborough back to 1799. Through the faith and dedication of our forebears, the buildings we worshiped in evolved to serve the needs of our growing and vital ministries.
April and May will be busy months for our Building Committees as we continue to work on design and fundraising to make our church fully handicapped accessible, bring to current code and create a modern lobby space.
In April & May, we will have several meetings for all to hear the plans and provide feedback.
